From ready position, swing your rope over your head, and stop it in front of you. No jumping. Swing it back over the other way and continue doing so until it feels easy and smooth. Next try “Swing, Wait, Jump”.
Start here before doing anything.
From “Eagle Pose” reach arms straight out in front of you. Tug on the back of your legs with the rope. Always start in ready position.
One swing, wait for the rope to hit the ground. Then jump over it while keeping arms relaxed (no whipping motion required)
Jumping rope requires patience and practice to develop coordination. Start simple, keep bouts short and add in skills to over time to keep it fun and interesting.
Some ropes come with an adjustable function inside of the handle. These adjustments are really meant to be done one time. Adjusting over and over will compromise the component.
Build a foundation with the Foundation Builder Routine. First you’ll learn about “Ready Position” then how to swing your rope. Take your time and progress when you feel ready. For extra help learning to jump rope, watch the “Jumping Progression” When you are ready, try a few of the skills on this page.
